Carbon Nanotechnology: Recent Developments in Chemistry, by Liming Dai PhD

By Liming Dai PhD

Nanotechnology isn't any longer a in simple terms social conversing element and is starting to have an effect on the lives of each person. Carbon nanotechnology as an enormous shaper of latest nanotechnologies has developed right into a really interdisciplinary box, which encompasses chemistry, physics, biology, medication, fabrics technology and engineering. it is a box during which an important volume of literature has been generated inside contemporary years, and the variety of courses continues to be expanding each year. Carbon Nanotechnology goals to supply a well timed assurance of the new improvement within the box with up to date experiences and comments through world-renowned specialists. meant to be an exposition of state of the art study and improvement instead of one of those convention continuing, Carbon Nanotechnology could be very important not just to skilled scientists and engineers, who desire to develop their wisdom of the wide-ranging nanotechnology and/or to increase functional units, but in addition to graduate and senior undergraduate scholars who glance to make their mark during this box of the longer term.

Gas-phase oxidation is a more discrete process requiring high activation energy for diameter-selective purification. Unlike liquid-phase oxidation, the gas-phase process preferentially oxidizes SWNTs without introducing sidewall defects. Sen et al. [120] have examined the effect of oxidation conditions on the purity of the as-prepared SWNTs films prepared by the arc-discharge method. Purification was monitored by near-infrared spectroscopy. This technique also gives an estimate of the change in relative amounts of SWNTs and amorphous carbon impurities after each purification step, thereby providing control over the oxidation process.

The amorphous carbon is removed by high-temperature hydrogen treatment and the remaining small metal nanoparticles agglomerate into larger particles. The absence of amorphous carbon is revealed from the TEM image in Fig. 12c. TEM images also suggest that the bundles grow in size and have diameters in the range of 20-50 nm after the hydrogen treatment. The metal nanoparticles agglomerate in the 750-850 °C range (Fig. 12c) and are removed in the second acid treatment carried out for a • ' '••:/. :-^ V^:^^".

These handles migrate along the graphene sheet till they reach the edge of the initial hole, where they form sevenmembered rings to give rise to a geometry curving upward. The seven-membered rings get confined at this high-curvature region due to energetics and the hexagons grow further to form the body of the tube. TEM examination of the carbonaceous products obtained in the pyrolysis of hydrocarbons and organometallic precursors suggests that the size of the catalyst particle plays a role, with regard to the nature of the product formed.
